Thanks for the inputs so far guys. I ask because not everything is where
I would like it and I do like staying current with drivers, kernels etc.

It seems there are two routes I can take to upgrade to FC2. I can change
a 1 to a 2 in the sources.list file and apt-get update && dist-upgrade.
This is a 520Mb dist upgrade and a little daunting (It tells me I have
to type in "Yes, do what I say!" to confirm LoL). 

Other choice is to backup my video db info and try a fresh install. As I
have never done the mysql backup and restore of the db this is (to me)
equally risky ( I don't want to loose the video information I already


What is the current status of the non-4kstacks ATrpms kernel. Is it
still needed? Have enough modules been built for it to get by yet?  If
this is still a sticky point I may hold off a while. Seems to be plenty
of people running FC2 now tho...

Thanks a bunch to everyone for their hard work!
